I have bought a few presents, checked how much wrapping paper I have, and bought Heston's Orange in a Cake thingy from Waitrose.

How much forward planning should I actually do? How can I be sure that I will get it right on the day?

So if I start planning now, AIBU?

You are leaving it a bit late aren't you?

Trills Sun 07-Oct-12 22:29:28

No such thing as "getting it right".

Just get lots of gin.

My sprouts have been on a simmer since August. You haven't planned nearly early enough.

<hyperventilates so much she passes out>

<goes to bed, having reported entire aibu board>

Trills Sun 07-Oct-12 22:31:45

Don't worry MaryZ - I reported this before it had a single reply. Just stirring, innit?

Well it is too early but it makes sense. I don't care about getting it right, just getting it. grin

Sparkling, I think I remember you starting a Christmas thread this week <narrows eyes>

I'm watching, you know. And updating the spreadsheet [hard stare]

It's October. What have you been doing for the last 10 months ffs?!

Get a grip woman. My presents have been wrapped under the tree since August.

<some of this may not be true>

Sparklingbrook Sun 07-Oct-12 22:37:46

Did I MaryZed what was it about? confused I have just this minute started one in the Christmas topic.

Whitecherry Sun 07-Oct-12 22:39:35

You really need to start back in January.... In the sales

Is your cake made yet....stir up Sunday has gone I believe

Also, Argos 3 for 2 on toys ended last week. You may just make the sainsburys half price sale.

You're supposed to start 6weeks after the last one finished.

GoSakuramachi Sun 07-Oct-12 22:50:40

Sod off to the xmas topic, you are all littering up aibu with this christmas bullshit.

MardyBra Sun 07-Oct-12 22:51:25

Another bloody Christmas thread in AIBU? angry

Glitterknickaz Sun 07-Oct-12 22:52:34

I'm panicking as I've left it late sad
Bloody tight budget.

GhostofMammaTJ Sun 07-Oct-12 22:56:23

I have recently had a chat with my friend about paying for vouchers for next Christmas. I know what I am getting my DC for their main presents and have bought some little ones too. Most of what they get will be second hand, but they won't know or care.

Ebay is our friend Glitterknickaz.

You are of course talking about Christmas 2014 aren't you? Don't worry you're a little late but there's just about enough time to catch up grin

Inneedofbrandy Sun 07-Oct-12 23:09:48

YANBU It is never to early to start planning. I start as soon as the kids go back after summer.

I love christmas threads grin gives me ideas to write in my christmas planning book.

Tryingtothinkofnewsnazzyname Sun 07-Oct-12 23:10:09

Hell no. I went to my first Christmas display opening night at a local store this week. Really.

ChaosTrulyReigns Sun 07-Oct-12 23:12:18


Trills, are you ailing?


RebeccaMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 07-Oct-12 23:15:36

YABU we have moved this to Christmas now, it is October.


Shinyshoes1 Sun 07-Oct-12 23:15:57
